Which Wiki is Right for You

Library Stuff directed me to an article in School Library Journal, "Which Wiki is Right for You?" by Shonda Brisco. There are tons of wiki builders out there and a question I get asked a lot is what type of wiki somebody should use. I am sorry to say but my answer has never been that great because a lot of it depends upon the person and what they want to do. I usually refer them to the Wiki Matrix, which compares wikis to each other. However, the Wiki Matrix profiles so many that it too can just add to the confusion a little.

So if you are interested in starting a wiki or just curious you should check out the article in School Library Journal. It profiles three popular wikis, PBWiki, WikiSpaces, and WetPaint. Cost, how it works, pros and cons are all discussed, allowing you to get a better idea of what each wiki does and make a more informed decision.
